The Church Choir of 1931.

Holy Trinity Church Choir 1931.
This photo was taken in the then vicarage garden. The vicar of the day was the Rev Canon Bachelor. The lady in the black hat was the relief organist Mrs. Kate Bird. In the back row I can see two choir men, who still members in my day. One is John Fowler and the other is Walter (Simmy) Ing, who was the vicars gardener. Come to think of it even the youngest of those choirboys would be in his middle nineties today. The man in the black cassock on the right of the photo was the Verger and would have been the predecessor to Alfred (Dad) Sexton.
